Glück sei ihm nur beschieden, falls er 'die Welt ins Reine, Wahre, Unveränderliche heben kann' notierte Kafka 1917 in seinem Tagebuch. Auch wenn er selbst sich mit seiner Erzählkunst an diesem Wunsch gescheitert sah - die ungeheure und anhaltende Wirkung seiner Prosa spricht für sich. Diese Ausgabe präsentiert alle zu Lebzeiten erschienenen Erzählungen des weltberühmten Prager Dichters sowie die von Max Brod aus dem Nachlaß herausgegebenen Prosastücke, deren faszinierende poetische Kraft bis heute ungebrochen ist. --anacondaverlag.com
*Includes pictures *Includes contemporary accounts of the Nigerian civil war *Includes online resources and a bibliography for further reading *Includes a table of contents “[A] cardinal principle of British colonial policy [is] that the interests of a large native population shall not be subject to the will… of a small minority of educated and Europeanized natives.” – Lord Frederick Lugard Nigeria was the creation of a British businessman by the name of Sir George Taubman Goldie. The gifted son of a substantial Manx military officer and politician, Goldie was educated at the prestigious Royal Military Academy at Woolwich, after which he served briefly in the army before embarking on a journey of adventure to West Africa. The year was 1877, and the West African coast was sub-divided into the spheres of influence of various European trading concerns, and while some exploration of the interior had taken place, the European rush to claim the region had yet to begin in earnest. Nigeria was an unpopular destination for European settlement, thanks to its punishing climate and proliferation of tropical disease, so it saw very little direct European influence. Europeans were posted to Nigeria or sought employment purely to satisfy the needs of administration, and, of course, the various Christian missionary organizations were led largely by whites. Christian missions, incidentally, succeeded spectacularly in the spreading of Christianity across the animist south, but they made absolutely no inroads in the Muslim north. Nigeria was among the first African colonies to be groomed for independence, and upon its success as a free nation, Britain staked a great deal. The process was lengthy, bearing in mind both the intricate ethnic tapestry of the region and the relatively complex systems of government, involving a number of different permutations in the 15 years between the end of World War II and 1960, when independence was finally granted. During this period, the realization began to dawn that the original 1914 amalgamation of the northern and southern protectorates of Nigeria might have been a strategic blunder, inasmuch as an attempt had been made to forge a single territory out of two radically different and mutually antagonistic blocs. It was, of course, too late by then to try and alter the political map of Nigeria, but perhaps the creation of two territories, rather than one, would have ultimately served the region better. On October 1, 1960, the new nation of Nigeria took its place on the world stage, and it was welcomed into the United Nations and the British Commonwealth. Riding a wave of official optimism, with its deep ethnic fissures for the time being hidden, Nigeria was hailed as a signature success in British decolonization. It would soon prove to be anything but a success. Biafra: The History and Legacy of the Secessionist Republic of Biafra during the Nigerian Civil War chronicles the story of Nigeria, its civil war, and the controversial secession of Biafra. Along with pictures and a bibliography, you will learn about Biafra like never before.
A professor of Music Analysis dies and his soul travels to meet the Children of the Light, who inquire about how music is learned on Earth. As a teacher on this subtler plane of existence, he is called on to override the merely rational way of understanding and communicating.
Instead, the evolution of sound is used as a metaphor to illustrate the journey of light into matter and the dualities generated by their opposition. The message of this imaginative story is about the linking of human beings to a higher-realm form of communication incorporated into the reality of the Earth of the future.

This volume of more than three hundred letters, selected from some seven thousand gathered around the world, is the first to provide a comprehensive collection of Thornton Wilder's correspondence.
Wilder was known as a man who knew everybody, and these letters vividly document the range of his friendships. Readers will find him roller-skating with Walt Disney, attending an inaugural reception for FDR at the White House, describing his life as a soldier in two World Wars, mentoring younger writers, dining out with Montgomery Clift and Elizabeth Taylor, and savoring his association with colorful local citizens during his twenty-month stay as a self-styled "hermit" in an Arizona mining town.
Through Wilder's correspondence, readers can eavesdrop on his conversations with Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Gertrude Stein. No�l Coward, Max Reinhardt, Gene Tunney, Alexander Woollcott, Laurence Olivier, Ruth Gordon, Garson Kanin, Aaron Copeland, Paul Hindemith, Leonard Bernstein, Edward Albee, and Mia Farrow. Equally absorbing are Wilder's intimate letters to his family. pThe author of such classics as iOur Town/i and iThe Bridge of San Luis Rey/i, Wilder was a born storyteller and dramatist; we see that talent emerging in scenes and incidental dialogue in his letters. With characteristic exuberance, he draws on his vast reservoir of learning and his incessant reading to inform, encourage, instruct, and entertain. In this collection, Thornton Wilder speaks for himself in his own unique, enduring voice.
Ha sucedido. El fin del mundo ha llegado y Santiago nuevamente se encuentra sitiada, pero esta vez no solo por militares y paramilitarea...
Alberto, Max y Valentina, tres jóvenes latinoamericanos social y políticamente discordantes, tendrán que aprender a entenderse para subsistir en una tormenta de violencia apocalíptica, mientras inician un sangriento viaje hacia el sur de Chile intentando escapar del horror capitalino. En su recorrido se verán enfrentados a sórdidas pruebas de supervivencia, teniendo que aprender a confiar entre sí y en su determinación de salvarse. Al mismo tiempo, descubrirán que aquello que los separa –y que aún divide a la sociedad chilena– acecha desde las sombras y provoca un ruido que es exacerbado por la situación límite que les toca enfrentar. Con una narrativa ágil y cinematográfica, Todo es rojo confronta ideologías y valores en un contexto de crisis, poniendo en tensión la posibilidad de un pensamiento después de la catástrofe.
